Multi-Grammy and Juno Award-winning artist, Chin Injeti releases a rallying cry of self-love and reliance in his new single, “For the Love of Life”.
And it wasn’t completed without some of Injeti’s tenured collaborative magic; he called upon fellow Vancouverite Teon Gibbs to feature on the track.
Check out the video for “For the Love of Life” below, and find out more about him via our mini-interview.
First off, care to introduce yourself to our readers?
My name is Chin Injeti aka Chindaddy aka Chin Dizzle aka Pranam.
Tell us about the recording process behind ” For The Love Of Life”?
For the Love Of Life was inspired by a friend I met last year at the beginning of Covid while stranded in Toronto. I met a person on Instagram we quickly became friends. We were talking about the challenges of being a woman of colour in the city of Vancouver. I learned so much about her struggles being Muslim and coming from Saudi Arabia. The conversation was so inspiring I wrote something that same night. While I was writing I could hear my son (who does all my artwork) practicing the piano. I loved what he was playing so I record him on my phone and then made a beat out of the chords he was playing. Later I reached out to this amazing rapper named Teon Gibbs. He quickly replied and dropped a beautiful verse on it. That is pretty much how it happened.
What was the highlight of 2020?
The highlight of 2020 was spending 3 months with my mom during the beginning of covid. I learned so much about her and myself! It was a precious time I know I will never get back again.
What do you hope to accomplish in your career in 2021?
I want to release as much music as possible and only work on projects that touch my soul. No cattle call writing or producing nope! Never again.
Is there anyone out there you’d like to collaborate with in the future?
I would love to work with Tyler The Creator that would be pretty cool.
